First-year Rep. Lisa Demuth (R-Cold Spring) has been appointed to serve on two bipartisan legislative groups, including one to serve a task force on child protection.
The Legislative Task Force on Child Protection was created in 2015 to expand efforts regarding child welfare in Minnesota. It works with the Department of Human Services and others to establish and evaluate child protection grants and also identify areas within the child welfare system that need to be addressed by the Legislature.
Demuth has also accepted a position with the P-20 Education Partnership, which “works collaboratively to maximize achievements of all students, from preschool through elementary, secondary and postsecondary education, while promoting the efficient use of financial and human resources.”
“This appointment will allow me to draw from my background with the Rocori school board,” Demuth said in a press reslease. “I once again am honored to be appointed to this position and welcome the opportunity to help give our children the best possible chance to achieve success in the classroom and in life.”
Demuth represents House District 13A, which includes the St. Joseph area.
